Transcript of Aspergers Syndrome
High functioning form of Autism
Affects the way a person communicates and socializes with others
Characterized by various traits
One sided conversations on favorite subjects
Lack of eye contact
Discovered by Hans Asperger, an Austrian pediatrician in the early 1940's
He noted it as a personality disorder and later it would be found that it is a milder form of Autism
"Child Development Center" in
Helped children with their daily routines
Shadowed a child with Asperger's Named Hadley
Took notes on how he interacted with the other kids and
what he liked to do.
Put together some stickers and Fact sheets that I handed out in the logo area
for further awareness.
My mentor Mr. Lukens has been great with helping me on my senior project. He had a lot of great input, and it was also easy to come and talk to him. His older nephew has Asperger's Syndrome as well which helped him connect with me on my project.
What makes a person "Socially awkward"?
Why I chose Asperger's Syndrome?
What is Asperger's Syndrome?
Child Development Center
Child's Development Center helps these Autistic children through art and sensory sections The picture was listed as "Sensory Center." Sometimes, Autistic children have heightened senses, so just trying to get them used to it is therapeutic.
This picture is from when I set up in the logo area of the school. I wanted to spread word to my peers because aspergers is a prevalent issue. I handed out Autistic ribbons and a fact sheet that had symptoms of Asperger's listed.
Just like in any other classroom, these kids participate in stories and playtime, but they are still building their skills in everything they do through art and playtime. Hadley really enjoyed Mr. Potato head.
Fast pacing of my research paper
The sense of accomplishment
Other Symptoms Include
Children with Asperger's may lack empathy for others.
Lack of a filter
Unusual facial gestures or postures
Preoccupied with only a few interests
Unable to recognize different pitches and tones in voice
Hyper-sensitive to sounds, tastes, and textures
Conclusion. . .
"Child Development Center" is a place that caters to the needs of children from ages two-five.
Low student to teacher ratio
On staff speech therapist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, and clinical social workers
Only 90% of the children that go here are Autistic.
I want to thank my grandmother I would also like to thank you all for judging me on my project. Also, thank you to Ms. Crews, my friends, and to my mentor Mr. Lukens :)
I hit a few road blocks during this process.
Working with special needs children
When I shadowed Hadley, I was able to record in a journal what I saw from him. I recognized that he did show characteristics of Asperger's.
He ended up in a physical altercation with a kid during playtime as well.
